Easter

News

“Me, write a blog? Really? I do not even read blogs. I am not even sure what they are!” That was my initial internal response to the invitation to write the Easter edition of our university’s ongoing blog. I had to wiki what a blog is–a kind of free form short journal of one’s thoughts […]

4 Ways Believers Can Prepare to Watch Noah

News

When asked to write a brief post for this blog concerning the upcoming screening and panel discussion of the Noah movie, I seriously hesitated. Some of the hesitation was caused by all the normal reasons; time constraint, poor grades in Mr. Warren’s composition class and a genuine concern about if I had anything to say. […]

Disconnect

News

I grew up in a small town, in a time when being outside was mandatory unless there was some important reason you had to be inside. Eating, sleeping and going to church were the primary reasons to come inside, and even those times were optional if the weather was nice. Small Georgia towns like West […]

Relentless Love

News

There is a world waiting on us to bring hope and the love of Jesus to them. Jesus calls us all to make a difference in the world, actively sharing God’s love with your family, your neighbors or even people in another city or country. Missions are the solemn duty with which Christians are charged. […]

Facing Change

News

If you’ve ever watched “Finding Nemo” (and who hasn’t?) you won’t be able to get this song out of your head for the next hour or so: “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…” Often, this has been a life motto for me. Except for one small change: “Just keep smiling.” […]

My Thoughts (This Week) on Social Media

News

I have long considered myself a dialecticist. Socrates believed that all of us grow closer toward Truth by engaging in a dialectical process: I have a thesis, you have an antithesis, and through dialogue and consideration of one another’s points, together we arrive at a synthesis. In my own life, then, I frequently waver back […]

Hang Time

News

As a high school senior I remember passing through the campus of Point University (then Atlanta Christian College in East Point) taking a high school friend home. As I drove down Dodson Drive, through the main College campus with NBA All-Star Dwight Howard sitting in the passenger seat, never in a million years would I […]

What I’ve Learned Along the Way

News

Last December my good friend, former teacher, valued colleague and all-around good guy Eddie Groover retired after a long and distinguished career serving Point University. With his retirement, I suddenly realized that no one currently serving Christ at Point University has been here longer than I have.  I am the last person here who was […]

Black History Month

News

As we find ourselves in Black History Month, are you aware of how it all began?  In 1926 an educator by the name of Dr. Carter G. Woodson realized that, “Hey, all of the history books are full of stories about white people and Pocahontas.”  He wondered, “did anyobody, besides white people, do anything noteworthy?”
